The Crusaders got off to a slow start against Southeast Elite Friday afternoon, trailing by double digits for a majority of the first half. Tate Odvody Tate Odvody 6'4" | SF Omaha Westside | 2023 State #170 Nation NE and Jake Brack Jake Brack 6'7" | PF Omaha Skutt | 2023 State NE were playing good post defense, but there wasn’t much else to write home about.

Roughly midway through the first half, Josiah Dotzler Josiah Dotzler 6'1" | SG Bellevue West | 2023 State NE flipped the switch for OSA, ratcheting up the tempo and putting pressure on the rim. Dotzler started spraying outlet passes to streaking teammates, or sprinting it up the court himself. This led to several easy buckets which jump started his team. Pryce Sandfort Pryce Sandfort 6'6" | SF Waukee Northwest | 2023 State #168 Nation IA got himself going courtesy of a few setups from Dotzler, and when shots started falling for Pryce, that was when the game flipped.

Sandfort is a competitor in every sense of the word. When he smells blood or senses a challenge from an opponent, he takes it personally and attacks right back. His shot began to fall, and when the Southeast Elite defense tried getting physical with him, he had no issue handling the contact and getting to the rim or hitting the midrange jumper.
